Pujos or Soriano?

Postby wkelly91 » Sat Mar 13, 2004 5:40 pm

I have the second pick in a 5 x 5 keeper. Until recently I thought Pujos was a slamdunk. Who would you take? :-?

While I have Pujols slightly higher ranked at this point, Soriano's stock is rising fast. He may be the better 5 category guy for your league. Also with second base being a scarce position, Soriano gives you instant points at all categories...the rest wouold be up to you to balance out your team. Pujols is eligible at two positions which gives him a slight edge there...but 1b and OF are very deep. Tough choice...good luck.

Pujols, you never know how long Soriano is going to keep playing at 2B in the coming years, Pujols will be a stud for the next 10 years.

Tough one. In these cases I sometimes will take the guy that I'm going to get to watch more. Since i live near St. Louis, I'd go with pujols, but Soriano is also a turbostud.

i'd go with Soriano only cos hes practically the only awesome guy at his position... and like Lefty QB said LF and OF are very deep positions w/ lots of awesome keepers whose numbers will be comparable to Pujols, whereas there'll be no one who'd even come close to matching Soriano's numbers at 2B.

With the second pick, I'd go with Pujols unless, of course, A-Rod is available.

I'd go with Soriano. He'll be 2b eligible this year and next, at least. He's playing in the American League's version of Coors. He's easily the best 2nd baseman out there - and his closest competition is aging fast.

Next year, Pujols will be eligible at 1st only. And there are so many good 1st basemen.

Plus, people forget how important steals are. Don't forget that Pierre was the #1 player last year for one reason and one reason only.

Soriano.
